RESERVES Claim a Point AGAIN!!

Keith Dickers Young reserves returned home from Felixstowe & Walton Utd with a 2-2 draw

Bloods started really brightly and immediately dominated possession. Noble, Naylor and Moir controlling the midfield comfortably.

Josh BATES in goal distributed really well and brought both wing backs Pluck & Game into the match to pose threats.

The first chance came in the 12th minute when Chaz Dickers pace enabled him to outrun all 3 Felixstowe centre backs and create a one on one with the keeper, his low shot just missed the post. 4 minutes later and a smart through ball by Moir gave Kibblewhite the identical opportunity and his low shot also just went wide. In the 27th minute and totally against the run of play a sharp cross by the Felixstowe winger saw the centre forward rise and loop home a great header to put the hosts 1-0 up.

Walden continued to play their passing game on a difficult surface and were rewarded when a great free kick delivery from 35 yards out saw Joe CUNNING rise above the opposing centre back and fire a header into the top corner. 1 a piece at half time.

The visitors made all 5 substitute changes at half time and the added injection of Borley’s pace up front immediately caused the home side problems. But once again against the run of play and a momentary lapse in concentration by the Walden centre backs saw the centre forward totally unmarked and his free header was well guided over Bates.

The game now became very open and Walden applied lots of pressure on the hosts. Hassan & Smith using their quick feet and technical skills were doing all they could to prize open the Felixstowe defence who stood resolute. However following a Game corner a melee ensued and Hassan snuck in to fire home from 6 yards.

Almost immediately Hassan once again teased the full back with his silky skills and crossed only for Borley to agonisingly put it wide from 4 yards out. The home side could have claimed all 3 points after a great run by the left winger ended in his strike from point blank range hit the bar. Full time 2-2.
